The Hunt for Red October

Book 1, Jack Ryan

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


Don't Miss the Original Series Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan Starring John Krasinski!

The #1 New York Times bestseller that launched the phenomenal career of Tom Clancy—a gripping military thriller that introduced the world to his unforgettable hero, Jack Ryan—nominated as one of America’s best-loved novels by PBS’s The Great American Read.

Somewhere under the freezing Atlantic, a Soviet sub commander has just made a fateful decision. The Red October is heading west. The Americans want her. The Russians want her back. The chase for the highly advanced nuclear submarine is on—and there’s only one man who can find her...
Brilliant CIA analyst Jack Ryan has little interest in fieldwork, but when covert photographs of Red October land on his desk, Ryan soon finds himself in the middle of a high-stakes game of hide-and-seek played by two world powers—a game that could end in all-out war.

Customer Reviews


Great book

Clancy's best...

"Red October" brings a deep sense of urgency and mystery to a compelling story. Ramius and Ryan drive each side of the defection attempt toward its exciting and harrowing end.

Great story, great detail

Clancy is clearly a great storyteller, and the technical detail in this book is legendary. It is truly hard to put this one down once you start reading it. The only fault is Clancy's USA=perfect Russia=evil/inferior theme, which runs throughout the book. We all know the real world isn't quite so simple, and so that detracts somewhat from the sense of realism. At times it reads like some 1950s anti-Soviet propaganda manual. That one weakness is hugely overshadowed by the book's great strengths, though: just read it!!
